While the exquisite sea of gowns and Katy Perry’s enormous pair of wings were the main event at last week's Met Gala, attendees did not disappoint in delivering heavenly beauty moments.

Enter, American royalty, Ariana Rockefeller whose dreamy ethereal beauty look exquisitely complemented her pale pink duchess satin custom couture gown by renowned designer Elizabeth Kennedy. 

Inspired by this year's exhibit, "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”, Ariana’s longtime friend and celebrity makeup artist Nicole Bryl, looked to create a romantic and luminous beauty look.


“To set the tone, I have been repeating key words to myself: ethereal innocence, untouched beauty, petal soft tones and pure love (Juliette)”. The result, angelic beauty, a clear take on the the divine and otherworldly. 

Bryl’s key to achieving Ariana’s radiant glow is her 4-Minute Anti-aging Treatment + Perfecting Serum. “Nothing works better to prep and prime the face before any makeup is applied.” The angelic flush on Ariana’s cheeks, gentle contouring and neutral colour palettes achieved the night's celestial  look.
